This TechRepublic gallery is also available as a Servers and Storage blog post.
Installation is a breeze; you just double-click it and then click Next a couple of times.
Check out the program called "VisionApp Remote Desktop" Remote Desktop on Steroids with multiple tabs and automatic logins :) http://www.visionapp.com/germany/software/visionapp-remote-desktop.html
http://terminals.codeplex.com/ 11 Enterprise Admins, managing 450 servers and can't do without it.
Looks a lot like the Remote Desktops snap-in for the mmc console in Microsoft's Administrative Tools.
Actually, I prefer MuRD. I love the layout and the ease to switch between multiple desktops right in one app. Been using this tool for several years now. http://murd.tandksoftware.com/
I'm interested in this programand I'll probably test it out (always looking for new techniques). However, I have accomplished much of it just using Libraries and Jump lists. I created RDP connections for each of my servers in a folder and than I created a Library with that folder. I then Added a single RDP toolbar icon and added/pinned each one to the jump list. Now, if I want to access a server, I right click the RDP toolbar iconand I have a full list of connections to all my servers.
which manages many other kinds of remote access, too.. http://remotedesktopmanager.com/
Another alternative method, is using Norton Symantec PcAnywhere which i have been using almost a decade now for big organisation.
I have been using UltimateRDCMMC for years. It ships with WS 2003 (I think) and I think TechRepublic posted an article on its installation and configuration a while (years) back.
I user Terminals (http://terminals.codeplex.com/)... is there a compelling reason to switch to this or mRemote?
I have found that VisionApps Remote Desktop works much better and can accomodate more than just RDP connections. They have a limited trial app (15 connections) and even the paid app is not that bad (in cost). I was using the RDCMan before I switched to VisionApp.
Look on codeplex.com for a program call terminals. I've been using this for a while now and don't know that I could be half as effective in my daily tasks without it.
I can see where the latest VisionApp Remote Desktop got it's "bells and whistles". Very cool. I was easily able to add external remote control apps to the mix. Nice...
Why use mRemote? What advantages does it have over using RDC Manager? Your original comment by itself just isn't enough to sway me...
this should give you a printable form of the article: http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/datacenter/?p=2936&tag=content;leftCol
Articles and discussions like this are why I keep coming back here. (Well, that and annoying Jason.) I was unaware this type of software existed. I'm eagerly anticipating getting back to the office next week and trying some of these. Thanks. to Scott and everyone who has responded so far.
The last free version was 1.5.1. If I didn't have the free version, I would pay the $30 that they are selling the current version for. www code4ward net
mRemote is dead. You can still download it but no work has been done on it since 2008. It was merged into a commercial product called Visionapp Remote Desktop.
I use it and like the way I can separate connections; by department, location, etc. Easy to manage and maintain...
I actually prefer Royal TS for the simple fact I am able to set passwords on the data file, plus the ability to add additional pre-connect tasks.
Hi everyone, Just want to contribute with this: mRemote has given place to mRemoteNG which is still available at www dot mremoteng dot org. It works flawlessly and IMHO its support for multiple protocols is a must. Regards,
